Ogres, the Betrayer and a lot of ugly stuff

I didn’t write my weekly update last week (oops) so this post is about my two weeks in WoW. I was actually very productive.

I want to get Loremaster of Outland done soon so I worked hard on that.

  • On the Blade’s Edge – I already had about 20 quests done so it took me 6 hours to finish. It’s visually interesting zone but it’s a huge pain the butt to navigate in. I had to constantly fly very high up and then down to avoid the spikes. And it’s not pretty. It’s grey and ugly and there’s even a dead dragon on one of the spikes (maybe more than one, I didn’t stay around long enough to find out). It reminded me of Vash’jir. The story is good, the quests are not terrible, but the way you move aroung the zone is bad and it spoils the whole thing. I’m glad it’s done. Although becoming a queen of ogres was interesting.
  •  Shadow of the Betrayer– also not a pretty zone. Random people kept sending me to Outland dungeons which was fine (transmog!) but I had to wait until next day a few times, because  I had already finished that particular dungeon that day. I like to do Loremaster in long gaming sessions and this was interrupting me.  But I finished it.
  • I started Terror of Terokkar. I did half of it but I need a break from the awful continent.

I feel bad for Outland. It’s the oldest questing zone now and it didn’t age well. Most of it sucks. I usually finish all the quests in a zone, not just the number needed for the Loremaster achievement, but I can’t be bothered in Outland. I’ll come back for all the reputations eventually though. One day.

I was going through my achievements and noticed that I had 49 reputations at exalted and there was an achiev for 50. I was very close to finishing Scale of the Sands rep so I ran The Battle for Mount Hyjal and got The Scale of the Sands and 50 Exalted Reputations! The raid bugged out for me the first few times I ran it so it took some time. I don’t know if I was killing the waves of mobs too fast or too slowly but now I’m more careful, I don’t run too far from the encounter and I always let the mobs come to me. That seems to do the trick.

I was really tired on Saturday but wanted to play so I was looking for something very easy to do. I Came, I Clawed, I Conquered is easy now, it just takes time. I don’t think I would want to do in any other mood so I’m glad I did it. I bought the mount, Bristling Hellboar. It’s ugly. Very ugly.

ugly-boar

I doubt I’ll ever use it but it’s a mount and I need to have them all. Eventually. Right now, I’m aiming for 150. I’m currently at 132 so it will take some time.

I’ve been farming The Vitreous Stone Drake from Slabhide in Stonecore. Almost 150 kills and no luck yet. It’ll drop eventually.

I also got 2500 Daily Quests Completed (I don’t think I want to know how many dailies I did..), Thirty Tabards, The Long Riders in Silvershard Mines battleground (we were winning by a lot so I quickly opened my achievement tab and I figured I could try for this one) and The Dwarven Dream for helping Brann feed his titan obsession. Which means that the archeology quest for the pretty mount is next! Can it be 15th already?

This week is going to be busy. Darkmoon Faire is up and I still need to do the dailies for pets. I’m level 45 at prestige 3 and it’s so close to 4! But Love is in the Air is coming so I’ll need to concentrate on that. Let’s hope that my next week in review will be about getting all the things done 🙂

  1. Ahhh Outland. It is my bane. I have Ogri’la left to get to exalted, and I believe the two bombing runs for achievements. And I just cannot get myself to head back there.

    • Ogri’la was the worst! I didn’t even finish their quests, they were tto annoying. I think they’ll be one of the last reputations I get to exalted.

  2. Doing Outland Loremaster on the Horde side is on my list of to-dos. I love the transmog that comes from there and there’s so many Horde stories I haven’t seen because I’ve hardly quested there as Horde.
    Grats on all the achs 🙂

    • Thanks 🙂 I haven’t done almost anything on the Horde side, I’ll do that too, eventually. There’s so much to do!
